possibly could i as an historian contribute to the body of knowledge on lincoln or george washington? pretty much everything that could be written about lincoln or washington probably has been written. the greatest historians have spent years poring through the lettedders and evidence that produced this book on lincoln or the hundreds of books on washington. so my thought was, eureka, why not look at them through the first lady? because historians have largely ignored the role of the first lady as they've largely ignored the role of mistresses in shaping the man. why? and i suspect because a lot of my colleagues tend to be older men, educated in a certain way that didn't study such matters, and most historians, as i always say, were not educated in matters of the heart or the harte. and so, therefore, they ignore that. so by studying the first lady, for example, the first thing thomas jefferson did after spending 17 days cooped up in a lot of outside of philadelphia writing the declaration of independence, the first thing he did is he went shopping. he went shopping for martha, his w

anything different when you woke up? we didn't think so. but the forced spending cuts are here. washington calls it the sequester. should you be afraid? it's not armageddon, but it is the opening credits of a very scary movie. here's the horror story the white house is telling. a world more dangerous than it was yesterday. >> what the sequester does, it uses a meat cleaver approach to gut criminal investments. >> the cuts are indiscriminate, some are frightening. less oversight and fewer audits of some nuclear facilities, hampered counterterrorism around the world, fewer food inspections, higher risk of wildfires. fewer hiv tests, a more dangerous border. but it's a horror story not everyone is buying tickets to see. >> i think that the president needs to stop trying to scare the american people, that absolutely, you can cut less than 3% without all these awful consequences. >> reporter: maybe so, in which case, the scariest thing about all of this is that washington is so inept. it's either scary or comical. like the movie "groundhog day." august 2011, a plan to avoid the debt limit pushe

that washington and silicon valley are on two different planets? >> i think that is fair to say. i think that the ties are probably getting closer. there's a lot more interaction these days than before. but i think in many ways, and for a long time, folks in silicon valley didn't care or when to know what was going on in washington. likewise i think people in washington were tone deaf to what is going on in silicon valley and the electronic industry. >> when you talk to tech companies in silicon valley, what i do they say about washington? that you can report. >> i think it depends on which companies you're talking about. in some cases, technology executives want washington to stay the hell out. keep it hands off. in some cases, technology companies want certain steps from washington. they would like more spectrum for the mobile phone industry. in some cases, again, for washington to not regulate. there was a big up roar about various kind of things regarding privacy or whatever. it is a divided message coming out of silicon valley. it depends on the issue. in some cases they want the go
